Revised Schedule VI – Case Studies
Current and non-current presentation – Assets 2 Expected to be realized in, or is intended for sale or consumption in, the companys Normal Operating Cycle Held primarily for the purpose of being traded; Expected to be realized within twelve months after the reporting date; Cash or cash equivalent unless it is restricted from being exchanged or used to settle a liability for at least twelve months after the reporting date An asset shall be classified as current when it satisfies any of the following criteria given below; All other assets will be classified as non-current
Operating cycle 3 Represents time between the acquisition of assets for processing and their realization in cash or cash equivalents May be longer than 12 months Where the normal operating cycle cannot be identified, it is assumed to have a duration of twelve months. Where a company is engaged in multiple businesses, operating cycle could be different for each line of business. For e.g. Operating cycle for wine manufacturing companies may be more than 12 months Liability payable on demand is current, even if its due date is beyond 12 months
General instructions: Current and non-current presentation – Liabilities (1/2) 4 Expected to be settled in the companys Normal Operating Cycle Held primarily for the purpose of being traded; Due to be settled within twelve months after the reporting date; The company does not have an unconditional right to defer settlement of the liability for at least twelve months after the reporting date. Terms of a liability that could, at the option of the counterparty, result in its settlement by the issue of equity instruments do not affect its classification A liability shall be classified as current when it satisfies any of the following criteria given below; All other liabilities will be classified as non-current
General instructions: Current and non-current presentation – Liabilities (2/2) 5 AS-15 Employee Benefits governs the measurement of various employee benefit obligations, their classification as current and noncurrent liabilities will be governed by the criteria laid down in the Revised Schedule VI. A company needs to classify its employee benefit obligations as current and non- current categories A liability is classified as current if a company does not have an unconditional right as on the Balance Sheet date to defer its settlement for twelve months after the reporting date A company will need to apply these criteria to its specific facts and circumstances and decide an appropriate classification of its employee benefit obligations viz. bonus, leave encashment, funded/ un-funded post employment benefits etc
Current v/s Non-current (1) 6 A.Entity A has stock of finished goods mainly for trading. However, at the end of the year, it has excess finished goods inventory that it does not expect to realize within the companys normal operating cycle of fifteen months. B. Entity A has sold 10,000 tons of steel to its customer. The sale contract provides for a normal credit period of three months. The companys operating cycle is six months. However, the company does not expect to receive the payment within twelve months from the reporting date. Discuss current/ non-current classification for Entity A.
Current v/s Non-current - Solution 7 A. Since such finished goods inventory is held primarily for the purpose of being traded, the same should be classified as current B.The same should be classified as Non-Current in the Balance Sheet. In case the company expects to realize the amount up to 12 months from the Balance Sheet date (though beyond operating cycle), the same should be classified as current.
Current v/s Non-current (2) 8 Entity Z has taken a five year loan. The loan contains certain debt covenants, e.g., filing of quarterly information, failing which the bank can recall the loan and demand repayment thereof. The company has not filed such information in the last quarter; as a result of which the bank has the right to recall the loan. However, based on the past experience and/or based on the discussions with the bank the management believes that default is minor and the bank will not demand the repayment of loan. Discuss current/ non-current classification for the above scenario.
Current v/s Non-current - Solution 9 -According to the definition of current liability, its important to determine whether a borrower has an unconditional right at the Balance Sheet date to defer the settlement irrespective of the nature of default and whether or not a bank can exercise its right to recall the loan. If the borrower does not have such right, the classification would be current. -It is pertinent to note that as per the terms and conditions of the aforesaid loan, the loan was not repayable on demand from day one. The loan became repayable on demand only on default in the debt covenant and bank has not demanded the repayment of loan up to the date of approval of the accounts. -In the Indian context, the criteria of a loan becoming repayable on demand on breach of a covenant, is generally added in the terms and conditions as a matter of abundant caution. Also, banks generally do not demand repayment of loans on such minor defaults of debt covenants. Therefore, in such situations, the companies generally continue to repay the loan as per its original terms and conditions. -Hence, considering that the practical implications of such minor breach are negligible in the Indian scenario, Z could continue to classify the loan as non-current as on the Balance Sheet date since the loan is not actually demanded by the bank at any time prior to the date on which the Financial Statements are approved.
Current v/s Non-current (3) 10 Discuss current and non-current classification for the following: A. Liability toward bonus B. Liability towards leave encashment C.Liability towards funded post-employment benefit obligation D.Liability towards unfunded post-employment benefit obligation
Current v/s Non-current - Solution 11 A.Liability toward bonus: payable within one year from the Balance Sheet date is classified as current, balance is classified as non-current B.In case of accumulated leave outstanding as on the reporting date, the employees have already earned the right to avail the leave and they are normally entitled to avail the leave at any time during the year. To the extent the employee has unconditional right to avail the leave, the same needs to be classified as current even though the same is measured as other long-term employee benefit as per AS-15. However, whether the right to defer the employees leave is available unconditionally with the company needs to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis – based on the terms of Employee Contract and Leave Policy, Employers right to postpone/deny the leave, restriction to avail leave in the next year for a maximum number of days, etc. In case of such complexities, the amount of Non-current and Current portions of leave obligation should normally be determined by a qualified Actuary.
Current v/s Non-current – Solution (contd.) 12 C.For funded post-employment benefit obligations, amount due for payment to the fund created for this purpose within twelve months is treated as current liability. D.For unfunded postemployment benefit obligations, a company will have settlement obligation at the Balance Sheet date or within twelve months for employees such as those who have already resigned or are expected to resign (which is factored for actuarial valuation) or are due for retirement within the next twelve months from the Balance Sheet date. Thus, the amount of obligation attributable to these employees is a current liability. The remaining amount attributable to other employees, who are likely to continue in the services for more than a year, is classified as non-current liability. Normally the actuary should determine the amount of current & non-current liability for unfunded post-employment benefit obligation based on the definition of Current and Non-current assets and liabilities in the Revised Schedule VI
Long term borrowing – Breach of debt covenant 13 There is a breach of a major debt covenant as on the balance sheet date related to long- term borrowing. This allows the lender to demand immediate repayment of loan. However, the lender has not demanded repayment till authorisation of financial statements for issue. Can the company continue to classify the loan as non-current? Will the classification be different if the lender has waived the breach before authorisation of financial statements for issue? As per the Guidance Note on the Revised Schedule VI, a breach is considered to impact the non-current nature of the loan only if the loan has been irrevocably recalled. Hence, in the Indian context, long-term loans, which have a minor or major breach in terms, will be considered as current only if the loans have been irrevocably recalled before authorisation of the financial statements for issue.
Preference Shares – Current Vs Non-Current 14 How will a company classify its investment in preference shares, which are convertible into equity shares within one year from the balance sheet date? Will it classify the investment as a current asset or a non-current asset? In accordance with the Revised Schedule VI, an investment realisable within 12 months from the reporting date is classified as a current asset. Such realisation should be in the form of cash or cash equivalents, rather than through conversion of one asset into another non-current asset. Hence, the company must classify such an investment as a non- current asset, unless it expects to sell the preference shares or the equity shares on conversion and realise cash within 12 months.
Cash Flow Statement – Current and Non-Current Presentation 15 As part of working capital movement and investing and financing activities, is it mandatory to present a separate movement for current and non -current components? For example, a company has segregated trade receivables into current and non-current components based on the Revised Schedule VI criteria. Is it mandatory for the company to disclose movement in current and non-current trade receivables separately? AS 3 Cash Flow Statements does not mandate such presentation. Nor is such presentation required in Revised Schedule VI or Guidance Note on the Revised Schedule VI. Hence, it is not mandatory for a company to present separate movement / inflows and outflows from current and noncurrent components of various line items separately.
Provision for Tax and Advance Tax 16 Guidance Note on the Revised Schedule VI requires deferred tax assets / liabilities to be classified as non-current. Does it imply that the provision for tax (net of advance tax) / advance tax (net of provision) also be classified as noncurrent? Current year tax provision (net of advance tax) will generally be treated as current liability, as this will become due in the short term. Current year advance tax (net of provision) as well as past years advance tax (net of provision) shall generally be classified as non- current as these are not likely to arise in the short term. Advance tax against which refund orders have been passed, and if not adjusted towards other liabilities, will only be treated as a current asset.
Security Deposits 17 The company has taken premises on operating leases for which it has paid a security deposit to the lessor. The lease term is five years. However, both parties can terminate the agreement after giving a three months notice. The deposits are refundable immediately on termination of agreement. The intention of the company is to continue the lease agreement for 5 years. Further, the company has taken electricity connection for which it has paid security deposits. These deposits are repayable on demand on surrender of the electricity connection. Can the company classify these security deposits as current assets? Classification of deposits paid depends on the expectation of its realisation. Hence, a company will classify lease / electricity deposits given as a non-current asset, unless it expects to recover the same within 12 months after the reporting date, that is, by cancelling the lease contract or surrendering the electricity connection.
Security Deposits 18 The company has received security deposit from its customers / dealers. Either the company or the customer / dealer can terminate the agreement by giving two months notice. The deposits are refundable within one month of termination. However, based on past experience, it is noted that deposits refunded in a year are not material, with 1% to 2% of the amount outstanding. The intention of the company is to continue long-term relationship with its customers / dealers. Can the company classify such security deposits as non-current liability? As per Revised Schedule VI, a liability is classified as current if the company does not have an unconditional right to defer its settlement for at least 12 months after the reporting date. This will apply generally. However, in specific cases, based on the commercial practice, say for example electricity deposit collected by the department, though stated on paper to be payable on demand, the companys records would show otherwise as these are generally not claimed in short term. Treating them as non-current may be appropriate and may have to be considered accordingly. A similar criterion will apply to other deposits received, for example, under cancellable leases.
Items included under the head raw materials 19 Which of the following items are included in the purview of raw materials for disclosure purposes? a)Fuel b)Consumable stores c)Containers and packing materials d)Traded goods
20 -Generally, the term raw material would include materials which physically enter into the composition of the finished products. Materials, such as stores, fuel, spare parts etc, which do not enter physically into the composition of the finished product, would therefore, be excluded from the purview of the term raw materials. -The revised Schedule VI is silent with regard to containers and packaging materials. Whether such item constitute raw materials should be decided based on the facts and circumstances of each case by considering the nature of the containers and packaging materials, their relative value in comparison to the raw materials consumed, and other similar considerations. Where packing materials are not classified as raw materials, the consumption thereof should be disclosed separately. -Traded goods should be excluded from the amount of consumption of materials Items included under the head raw materials
Disclosure under employee benefits 21 Will the following expenses be disclosed under employee benefits? a)ESOP / ESPP to directors b)Sitting fees to directors c)Compensation paid to persons under contract of services d)Compensation paid to persons under contract for services e)Penalties paid to statutory authorities on employee benefit related dues
22 -ESOP / ESPP for all directors (executive and non-executive) would be disclosed under the head Employee benefits -Sitting fees paid to non-executive directors should not be included in employee benefits -Compensation paid to persons under contract of services should be included as part of employee benefits as the employer employee relationship is established -Compensation paid to persons under contract for services should not be included. -Penalties paid to statutory authorities on employee benefit related dues are not in the nature of contribution to funds and hence should not be a part of employee benefits. Disclosure under employee benefits
Presentation of Preference Share Capital 23 The Revised Schedule VI states that different classes of preference share capital to be treated separately Based on economic substance of preference shares using AS 31 Financial Instruments: Presentation, a question arises whether preference shares should be classified as liability or equity. The Revised Schedule VI deals only with presentation and disclosure requirements. Accounting for various items is governed by the applicable Accounting Standards (AS). However, AS 30 Financial Instruments : Recognition and Measurement, AS 31 and AS 32 Financial Instruments: Disclosures are yet to be notified. Section 85(1) of the Act refers to Preference Shares as a kind of share capital. Hence, Preference Shares will have to be classified as Share Capital
Presentation of Share application money pending allotment 24 Share application money pending allotment is required to be shown as a separate line item on the face of the Balance Sheet after Shareholders Funds However, instructions for disclosure of Other current liabilities states that Share application money not exceeding the issued capital and to the extent not refundable shall be shown under the head Equity. The two requirements appear to be conflicting From the format as set out in the Revised Schedule VI, it appears that the Regulators intention is to specifically highlight the amount of Share application money pending allotment, though they may be, in substance, in nature of Equity Accordingly, the equity element should continue to be disclosed on the face of the Balance Sheet as a separate line item, rather than as a component of Shareholders Funds
Disclosure for revalued assets 25 Revised Schedule VI requires an entity to disclose increased or reduced amounts along with amount of increase or decrease for a period of 5 years subsequent to the date of revaluation AS 10 Accounting for Fixed Assets requires a company to disclose details such as gross book value of revalued assets, method of revaluation, nature of indices used, year of appraisal etc. as long as the concerned assets are held by the enterprise Disclosure requirements of the Accounting Standards are in addition to disclosures required under the Schedule. Also, in case of any conflict, the Accounting Standards will prevail over the Schedule. Accordingly, details required by AS 10 will have to be given as long as the asset is held by the company.
Classification of Investments between Current & Non-current 26 The Revised Schedule VI requires Investments to be classified as Current and Non- Current. However, AS 13 Accounting for Investments requires to classify Investments as Current and Long-Term As per AS-13, the assessment of whether an Investment is Long-term has to be made with respect to the date of Investment. For e.g. as per AS 13, current investment is an investment that is by its nature readily realizable and is intended to be held for not more than one year from the date on which such investment is made As per the Revised Schedule VI, Non-current Investment has to be determined with respect to the Balance Sheet date. For e.g. investments which are realizable within a period of 12 months from the date of balance sheet will be treated as current irrespective of its date of investments
Classification of Investments between Current & Non-current 27 Revised Schedule VI clarifies that the Accounting Standards would prevail over the Schedule in case of any inconsistencies between the two However, it is pertinent to note that AS 13 does not lay down presentation norms, though it requires disclosures to be made for Current and Long-term Investments Accordingly, presentation of all investments in the Balance Sheet should be made based on Current/Non-current classification as defined in the Revised Schedule VI The portion of long-term investment as per AS 13 which is expected to be realized within twelve months from the Balance Sheet date needs to be shown as Current investment under the Revised Schedule VI Revised Schedule VI clarifies that the Accounting Standards would prevail over the Schedule in case of any inconsistencies between the two However, it is pertinent to note that AS 13 does not lay down presentation norms, though it requires disclosures to be made for Current and Long-term Investments Accordingly, presentation of all investments in the Balance Sheet should be made based on Current/Non-current classification as defined in the Revised Schedule VI The portion of long-term investment as per AS 13 which is expected to be realized within twelve months from the Balance Sheet date needs to be shown as Current investment under the Revised Schedule VI
Presentation of trade receivables 28 Old Schedule VI required separate presentation of debtors (i)outstanding for a period exceeding six months (i.e., based on billing date); (ii)other debtors. However, the Revised Schedule VI requires separate disclosure of Trade Receivables outstanding for a period exceeding six months from the date they became due for payment only for the current portion of trade receivables Where no due date is specifically agreed upon, normal credit period allowed by the company should be taken into consideration for computing the due date which may vary depending upon the nature of goods or services sold and the type of customers, etc.
Presentation of proposed dividend 29 Old The Revised Schedule VI requires disclosure of the amount of dividends proposed to be distributed to equity and preference shareholders for the period and the related amount per share to be disclosed separately. This needs to be disclosed in the notes The Old Schedule VI specifically required proposed dividend to be disclosed under the head Provisions Hence, a question that arises is as to whether this means that proposed dividend is not required to be provided for when applying the Revised Schedule VI
Presentation of proposed dividend 30 AS-4 Contingencies and Events Occurring After the Balance Sheet date requires that dividends stated to be in respect of the period covered by the Financial Statements, which are proposed or declared by the enterprise after the Balance Sheet date but before approval of the Financial Statements, should be adjusted Keeping this in view and the fact that the Accounting Standards override the Revised Schedule VI, companies will have to continue to create a provision for dividends in respect of the period covered by the Financial Statements and disclose the same as a provision in the Balance Sheet, unless AS-4 is revised. Hence, the disclosure to be made in the notes is over and above the disclosures pertaining to a) the appropriation items to be disclosed under Reserves and Surplus and b) Provisions in the Balance Sheet
Presentation of capital advances 31 Whether capital advances also need to be bifurcated between non-current and current categories? If yes, on what basis? Capital advances are advances given for procurement of fixed assets which are non- current assets. Typically, companies do not expect to realize them in cash in the next 12 months or within their normal operating cycle. Rather, over the period, these get categorized as one or more fixed assets. Hence, we believe that capital advances should be treated as non-current assets
Disclosure of comparatives 32 A company is preparing its financial statements in accordance with the Revised Schedule VI for the first time. For certain information required to be disclosed in the notes, the current year amounts are nil. For example, let us assume that there is no default in repayment of loan and interest existing as at the end of current year. Is the company required to present previous year figures for such notes? Alternatively, can it omit the previous year information since no disclosure is required in the current year? Revised Schedule VI requires that Except in the case of the first financial statements laid before the company (after its incorporation), the corresponding amounts (comparatives) for the immediately preceding reporting period for all items shown in the financial statements including notes shall also be given. The objective of presenting comparative information is to help users of financial statements in understanding the trends and key changes vis -à-vis the previous period financial statements. The inter-period comparability of information assists users in taking their economic decisions. Hence, a company needs to present comparative information for disclosures required under Revised Schedule VI even if their current period amount is nil.
Classification as Trade Receivables 33 If during the lean period, there is some activity being carried out by the company, which is not in its normal course of business, and there is a receivable or outstanding from such activity, is it considered as Trade Receivable? If the receivables arise out of sale of materials or rendering of services in the normal course of business, it should be treated as trade receivables. Otherwise, it is treated as other assets.
Classification as Trade Receivables 34 In accordance with Guidance Note on the Revised Schedule VI, a payable is classified as trade payable if it pertains to amount due towards goods purchased or services received in the normal course of business. Based on this principle, can a company include in trade payables the liability towards employees, leases or other contractual liabilities? What is the treatment for amounts due towards capital goods purchased? Paragraph of Guidance Note on the Revised Schedule VI provides the following information with regard to identification of trade payables: A payable shall be classified as trade payable if it is in respect of amount due on account of goods purchased or services received in the normal course of business. As per the old Schedule VI, the term sundry creditors included amounts due in respect of goods purchased or services received or in respect of other contractual obligations as well. Hence, amounts due under contractual obligations can no longer be included within trade payables and only commercial dues can be included under trade payables. Amounts due towards purchase of capital goods should also not be included in trade payables. They must be disclosed under other current liabilities wi th a suitable description.
Current v/s Non current classification 35 A company has classified the loan as non-current liability in the previous year. The loan becomes a current liability in the current years financial statements. Is the company required to reclassify the loan as current liability in previous year also to match the current year classification ? Current / non -current classification of assets / liabilities is determined on a particular date, viz., the balance sheet date. Thus, the company should have determined the current / non-current classification of previous year balances based on the pos ition existing as at the end of the previous year. If there is any change in the position at the end of current year resulting in different classification of assets / liabilities in the current year, it will not impact the classification made in the previo us year. In other words, the company will continue to classify the loan as non -current liability in the figures of the previous period.
Non controlling interest 36 The issue is whether NCI (Minority Interest) must be broken up and classified as current and non-current. To the extent of the share of provision of dividend to subsidiary, should it be current? The non-controlling interest is not subject to current and non-current distinction as it forms a part of the shareholders funds.
